UA adds Nic Wise’s brother on scholarshipby Anthony Gimino on Oct. 14, 2009, under Sports
Dondre Wise, the younger brother of Arizona senior guard Nic Wise, will fill UA’s final scholarship for this season, the school announced today.
UA also is adding two walk-ons: Ross Davidson and Max Wiepking.
Dondre is a 6-1 sophomore guard who played at Pima Community College last season, averaging 10.7 points, 3.2 assists and 1.2 steals in 30 games. He started 17 of those games. Dondre has been working out with the Wildcats and was expected to be with the team this season one way or another, even if it was as walk-on.
The Wise brothers played together at Kingwood (Texas) High School in 2005 and 2006.
Davidson is 6-7 freshman forward from San Juan Capistrano, Calif. He played at Junipero Serra Catholic High School.
Wiepking is a 6-6 freshman forward from Englewood, Colo., where he earned second-team all-state honors.
Arizona will hold its annual Media Day on Wednesday afternoon, so check back tonight for coverage on the Wildcats from me, Javier Morales and new TucsonCitizen.com blogger, Steve Rivera, who brings about two decades of experience covering UA hoops.
